The plot in this tedious story of the young Sherlock Holmes is so absurd it is laughable! The pompous, plodding narrator makes the story drag even more. The action is based entirely on a series of escapes from unbelievable predicaments by the ever clever young Mr. Holmes. And then there is the paranoid theme, reminiscent of Moriarty, this time in the form of a secretive society planning to take over the world. Young readers would be advised to read or listen to the original Conan Doyle stories instead of this pastiche.
Third in Lane's "Young Sherlock" series, this clever tale further develops the budding sleuth's character and eccentricities. In particular we learn how and from where Sherlock gets his violin. But Sherlock's going to have to put on some muscle if he's going to survive many more such "physical" adventures.
